Take Action

There is no better strategy for impacting federal policy than advocacy. Join our efforts.

Members of Congress are much more likely to focus on ending homelessness if they understand how it affects people and programs back at home. The more they hear from constituents about how programs are preventing and ending homelessness in their district, the more likely they are to act.

It's up to us to convince our Members of Congress to take action! Learn more about our advocacy efforts and what you can do to make sure that adequate federal investments are made in affordable housing and homelessness assistance.
